I am developing an online portal for young filmmakers to learn all about color grading in Davinci Resolve and how color works in the filmmaking process. All departments and levels of experience are welcome!
Online education portal:
I was originally inspired to create a space for my private students (hello if you're here!), but the more I thought about it, the more I wanted to make it bigger than that. I've noticed that Color Grading is often a bit of an after thought for young filmmakers as well as film schools. I don't blame them at all for this since it is such a new and somewhat invisible part of the filmmaking process.
However, I do want to change this misconception and try to bring Color Grading more into focus.
Color Grading in Davinci Resolve:
What will be on the website:
1). Tutorials: workflows for round-tripping, color management, basic tools, using scopes, navigating Davinci Resolve, etc...
2). Courses: Recorded courses you can buy to further your knowledge if you want a deeper and more guided approach.
3). Other resources: Interviews with other filmmakers, advice to get started, what to buy to get started as a colorist, and more.
Color Grading is a massive part of what makes our final image, and it can be a bit of an overwhelming rabbit hole to dive into. It can be hard to know where to start, or which tutorials are giving solid advice verses which are giving false promises of "5 easy fixes to make your film cinematic".
My goal is to give you enough information to decide for yourself and get you started on your journey!
Who is this for?
This is for all departments.
A lot of content will be geared more towards those who want to learn specific things about Davinci Resolve and further their own Color Grading skills.
However, there will be something for everyone! Whether you're a director, producer, cinematographer, production designer, editor, or you don't know what you want to be yet. Come on in, learning more about color helps everyone!
When will Goodecolor.com go live?
I don't have an exact date, but I want to ensure that there will be enough content for you to get a good entry point into Color Grading. If you want to know when we go live, feel free to subscribe!
